Lentil, Frankfurter and Bacon Soup

A couple of months ago, after what felt like two years of eating sandwiches for lunch, we got frickin’ sick of meat on bread.

Now we plan ahead and make something on Sunday to pack for lunch all week long. It’s waaaay better than the same-old, same-old sandwich.

Our latest creation is a soup that had some interesting ingredients. You will probably call it Hot Dog Soup. We’re okay with that.

Not something you are going to find in a campbell's can.

Jewish Apple Cake

Why Jewish? The world may never know. That’s just what my mother calls it, and what her family calls it, and heck, that’s what a bunch of people on the Internet call it, so there you have it. Jewish Apple Cake.

It got even more moist as it sat on the table.

Chunky Shepherd’s Pie

After writing this blog for almost a year, new recipes that I might actually want to eat are getting less obvious from week to week.

It’s not like we struggle to come up with meals (although, sometimes we do), but I have run through all of my standby dishes and personal secret recipes.

So I decided to see what sorts of recipes were in Fannie Farmer’s cookbook. I found one that sounded alright: Shepherd’s Pie.

The idea pretty much came right out of nowhere.

Flattened Porks Chops with Feaston Beans

From time to time we end up with, like, a dozen pork chops in our freezer. Why so many? Because you can get that many for $8.

They are cheap and we like them, but sometimes we’re all, “What the hell do you do with these pork chops?” You know, besides just eat pork chops.

So I had a brain hurricane one day and this is what came out:

Breaded, fried pork chops with the popular green bean and stewed tomatoes recipe.

Disaster Stuffed Chicken Boobs

It’s been a minute since Feaston has screwed something up really bad. I was on the fence about whether we should classify this as a disaster at first, but looking back, I now think it falls squarely into the SUCK category.

I mean, this seemed like a GREAT idea at the time. Stuffed chicken breasts. They have them in the case at Wegmans. If they sell them to the general public, how hard could they be to make?

Find out how hard after the jump.

But look how pretty.

Feaston Tries Cauliflower Fritters

In last month’s Rachael Ray Everyday magazine, we saw this recipe and were  intrigued.

Neither one of us are all that crazy about cauliflower, but we figured anytime you bread and fry something, it’s bound to be good. That was exactly the case with these yum-yums.

We spiced and dressed them up a little bit just to be sure.

A little green onion and cheese on top and you are ready to rock.

Tequila Shot Salmon

This started out as a honey-lime salmon. We were trying to reclaim a taste of summer. But then we forgot to buy limes, and remembered how good tequila is in food, so there you have it. A happy mistake!

This is super easy to make and it’s ready in a flash.

It's a tasty morsel. See that beer in the background? It's a Miller High Life. Yeah, we went there.
